Designing a holiday table is one of my favorite things to do this time of year. I love to make the most out of the Christmas season and a pretty table is always one of the first items on my decorating list. As much fun as coming up with a tablescape for my own home is, I love getting to collaborate with the MBI team when we get to style a client’s table for Christmas. I love that no matter the style of the home and family that lives there, there’s a unique, beautiful way to set the stage for a Merry Christmas.
This home is very contemporary and chic. We chose sleek finishes and furniture for the interior design so it only made sense to follow suit and design this table with luxe modern touches. Like any table decor, the dining table and chairs are the foundational elements to build upon. We love using tablecloths when appropriate but this stunning marble and patterned wood table by Ray Booth deserved to be kept uncovered. The chair are a neutral velvet making the color palette options endless.
We used our favorite Aronson Woodworks chargers as the guests place settings. For the head places, we mixed it up with Hollie Trays from House of Blum. I love mixing patterns where the colors all work together. They really make the classic Christmas dinner plates and matte black side plates stand out. We placed linen napkins in gold napkin rings to add warmth to the table.
To make the table even more festive and fun, we placed 8 Wine Glass Vases from House of Blum in a long tray. A single berry-hued Cala Lily was placed in each vase. We finished the centerpiece with fragrant and pretty rosemary for the finishing touch. To pull the red from the plaid plates, we added pomegranate seeds to the glasses of champagne. It tastes as great as it looks.
Mixing and matching different styles for this contemporary holiday table was a fun way to get creative with the MBI team. I love the way the classic elements look right at home in a modern setting because of all of the intentional layers. How will you be decorating your holiday table this year?
